To support alcoholic women in achieving long-term sobriety in a safe, supportive and structured alcohol/drug-free environment through guidance and education.
Turning Point is a Social Model recovery program with an emphasis on wellness rather than sickness. We encourage residents to participate in all areas of life that will help facilitate a healthy and successful transition back into the community. We evaluate residents’ readiness to return to work or school on an individual basis.
We have a large local community network that enables us to make appropriate referrals to vocational training and job placement programs, continuing and adult education, volunteer opportunities, community clinics dealing with physical and mental health, as well as other community assistance programs.
While not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, Turning Point wholeheartedly endorses the AA 12-step program as the most effective means of recovery and long-term sobriety.
The Turning Point program encourages women to learn to be more self-aware, dignified and self-respecting, thereby gaining greater self-esteem. We encourage personal growth through personal responsibility. Residents learn valuable social skills enabling them to maintain their sobriety and successfully integrate as sober and productive members of their community.
